Melanie Sykes ‘quit TV’ after comment from MasterChef’s Gregg Wallace

Melanie Sykes has vowed never to return to mainstream TV after comments made by MasterChef’s Gregg Wallace. The 53-year-old said she has quit TV for good after remarks that were made when she took part in the celebrity version of the BBC cooking show. Melanie, who is best known for co-hosting Today with Des and Mel with Des O’Connor and Let’s Do Lunch with Gino D’Acampo, said she felt like she was “thrown under the bus” while on Celebrity MasterChef in 2021. Melanie’s TV presenting career began by hosting Sky One’s Real TV UK series in the mid-90s, and she went on to appear on shows including The Big Breakfast, The Paul O’Grady Show, and she also competed on I’m A Celebrity…Get Me Out of Here! and The Great Stand Up To Cancer Bake Off.
